Synopsis
Shepherd Simon sees an angelic vision while tending his flock, and who believes him? No one ever! His betrothed is convinced that working nights made him hallucinate, so Simon thinks supplying lamb to King Herod’s palace will mean a promotion and regular hours. Meanwhile, three of the richest men ever come calling. They are seeking a king—but not Herod. A baby! When Herod spots their treasure chest, he is bedazzled by all the glittering gold. He says that the baby king is napping and the Magi should just leave the gold with him—but they insist on worshiping the baby. There is hilarity of the highest order as first a rag doll, then Herod himself is passed off as the baby king. Simon hits the scene, spills the beans on the bearded baby, and saves the day by guiding the three visitors to the holy family in the stable. There’s sacred within the silly—the Magi quote Scripture and recite “We Three Kings.” A broad comedy perfect for Advent through Epiphany.
